Katy Perry Calls Out ‘Dumb Conspiracy Trash’ Amid Alleged Relationship Drama
Entertainment| | By Sara Wilkins
Katy Perry has urged fans not to pay attention to “dumb conspiracy trash” amid rumors her boyfriend Orlando Bloom hooked up with Selena Gomez in Las Vegas.
The “Teenage Dream” singer, who has been dating the 39-year-old Lord of the Rings star for several months, found herself in the middle of a make-believe love triangle over the weekend after photos surfaced of the actor and Gomez getting cosy at a club.
For days, gossips suggested Bloom was cheating on Perry with Justin Bieber’s ex, while sources insisted the “Come & Get It” singer and the movie hunk are just friends. And Perry added fuel to the fire on Wednesday night when sharing a link to Peggy Lee’s version of “Is That All There Is?,” suggesting the song was symbolic of a possible heartbreak.
The song’s lyrics include the lines: “And then I fell in love with the most wonderful boy in the world/We would take long walks by the river/Or just sit for hours gazing into each other’s eyes/We were so very much in love… Then one day, he went away and I thought I’d die/But I didn’t.”
However, on Thursday, Perry made it clear she is standing by her man and encouraged her fans to ignore the break-up gossip and chit-chat about her boyfriend’s fling with Gomez, who happens to be her pop rival Taylor Swift’s best friend.
She shared another link to a recent Time magazine article, written by Bloom, in which he details his visit to eastern Ukraine as a UNICEF goodwill ambassador.
Perry added, “Instead of giving energy & eyeballs to dumb conspiracy (trash emoji) check out how COOL this is… #dontfeedthebeast.”
